Top Ten of 2005

Only about 10 days left in 2005, I thought I'd post my top ten albums of 2005 here. I made this list a while back actually; nothing too good has come out since then.

10. Sunn O))) - "Black1"
9. The Mars Volta - "Frances the Mute"
8. Sufjan Stevens - "Illinois"
7. Rosetta - "The Galilean Satellites"
6. Pelican - "The Fire in Our Throats Will Beckon the Thaw"
5. Darkest Hour - "Undoing Ruin"
4. Dredg - "Catch Without Arms"
3. Bright Eyes - "Digital Ash in a Digital Urn"
2. Sigur Ros - "Takk..."
1. Red Sparowes - "At the Soundless Dawn"

And maybe some honorable mentions to Feist, Martha Wainwright, Andrew Bird, Modern Life Is War, Eisley, A Silver Mt. Zion. Looking forward to 2006, there are the new Mogwai and Belle and Sebastian in the immediate future.
